Summer Containers

This summer, the horticulture staff at the Ambler Arboretum of Temple University put together some really fun containers, so I wanted to show them off.  They are still looking great after a summer that started hot and dry and ended extremely wet.

Finn's Quilt

Grace with Finn and his quilt
A few months ago, I started a quilt for my friends Tee Jay and Christina and their new baby Finlay August.  You can read about starting the quilt here and finishing the quilt top here. I finally quilted it and was able to give it to Finn this weekend!
